Welcome to Grateful Wednesday!

#GivingTuesday has given way to Grateful Wednesday. Why are we so grateful? Because of YOU! Thanks to a generous matching funds opportunity, NNEMAP Food Pantry donors raised $3,600 to help fuel our mission!

 

Think your donation doesn’t make a difference? Think again!

 

NNEMAP Food Pantry can do a lot with a little. That $3,600 can buy about 2 months worth of food for our customers AND pay the electricity bill to keep it fresh.

 

Trigger warning: Math lesson!

 

So what does “2 months worth of food” even mean?!? Good question–let us explain. We see about 1,500 pantry visits each month, and each household averages about 3 members. We provide enough food for about 3 days worth of meals per pantry visit (so about 9 meals per person per visit).

So that $3,600 will account for about 40,000 meals (1,500 pantry visits x 3 persons per household x 9 meals per person)…

…AND enough cash leftover to keep the lights on and the freezers and coolers running. We’re pretty thrifty!

 

We are all about second chances. If you missed out on Giving Tuesday, don’t despair. You can always DONATE NOW!!! We promise to get some bang for your bucks!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF OUR MISSION!!!

Dear Donors: THANK YOU!!!

 

Back in the early 1980s, Nestle was pushing a certain candy bar big time. There were TV commercials and everything (maybe–who can remember all that?). Anyway, they product they were pitching was the 100 Grand bar. Pretty tasty. Chocolate, caramel, crisped rice, maybe some nutty concoction thrown in for good measure. It was a quality product. And 100 Grand? That was a pretty penny. How could it NOT be good?!?

Well 100 grand is still a pretty penny in some places–like NNEMAP Food Pantry. And thanks to ALL of our donors and sponsors, we just pulled in OVER 100 grand through the CenturyLink Campaign to Fight Hunger. This event, featuring generous matching funds from the Clarke M. Williams Foundation, concluded on the night of June 15. We just got our final tally–with donations and matching funds, NNEMAP Food Pantry will soon be getting $102,109.39 to put into our piggy bank. Let me say that again:

$102,109.39

That’s a lot of candy bars! Or, actually, that’s a lot of healthier food choices (we like to make sure our neighbors have wholesome selections when they come to shop!). Maybe with that extra 39 cents we can get one of these:

The short-lived Reggie! bar presented an 8-year-old with a relative bargain at 25 cents back in 1980. As one former Reggie Jackson teammate quipped, “When you open a Reggie bar, it tells you how good it is.”

I’m not about to compare our donors to a candy bar–but I will tell you how great you are. Your response to this rare matching funds opportunity exceeded our wildest expectations. We are grateful for your continued generosity. It is truly not possible to thank you enough for your support. I will say, however, that I was always partial to the 100 Grand!

On behalf of the staff, volunteers, board of directors and, most importantly, the thousands of neighbors we serve–THANK YOU!!!!!
